Good: The Penguins won the Cup.
Bad: Yeah, I got nothing there.
Good: Sidney Crosby finally shed the label of “Best Current Player to Never Win a Cup.”
Bad: Miro Freakin Satan won a Cup. Please cue the predictable Buffalo News article focusing on the only way that Sabres players win the Cup is to leave town. That will be the second article in the Predictable Series. The first article will focus on “Why is Lindy Ruff Still the Coach?” The third article will focus on “Buffalo Won’t Spend to Win the Cup.”
Good: Pittsburgh won a Cup despite changing coaches midstream. Or because of it.You make the call.
Bad: Hi, Lindy! (Kidding. I think Lindy’s going to be the coach through at least the midpoint of next season.)
Good: Despite the fact that he’s now 21 years old, Sid will still have a spot open for him at Chez Lemieux.
Bad: Despite the fact that he’s now 21 years old, Sid will still have a spot open for him at Chez Lemieux. (Kidding. I think it’s adorable that Sid has become the 21-year old kid that the Lemieux family never knew they wanted. And how is Lemieux recognized by WordPress/Firefox spellcheck anyway?)
Good: The debacle that was the 2008-09 hockey season is now over. And admittedly, unless you’re a fan of a selected group of teams, your season was a debacle.
Bad: Is it October yet?
Bad: I needed another hockey related shirt like I needed a hole in the head.
